Dark’s (In the Gloaming: Stories) novel is a sweeping tale spanning the 20th century in a complex, intricately woven, and beautifully told story of female friendship. Agnes Lee, a celebrated children’s author, has cancer. She wants to finish the final book in her famous series; she also hopes to protect land, known as Fellowship Point, but must convince her friend and fellow shareholder Polly to do so. Polly has lived a life opposite to Agnes, one full of family and harmony. She is caught between her desire to fulfill the wishes of her friend and the wishes of her children. Plans are further thrown awry when ambitious editor Maud enters the scene. Maud presses Agnes to write her memoirs, and what she uncovers has repercussions for each of the women. Narrator Cassandra Campbell brings each of the women to life, highlighting the differences in time, place, age, and life circumstances. The ending provides a satisfying finish.
VERDICT Listeners looking for a novel that reads like a classic but tackles modern issues will enjoy this book.
